Irv Gotti Busted

Irv Gotti was busted Friday evening and charged

with possession of ecstasy, in Oakland, California.

The head of Murder Inc. was stopped at a security

checkpoint backstage at the Network Associates Coliseum, during an R.Kelly concert.

A search of Gotti turned up one single ecstasy

tablet along with prescription Viagra tablets.

Gotti was booked at the Alameda County Jail in

Oakland, charged with possession of a controlled substance and released on bail.

Gotti is scheduled to appear in front of a judge

in Oakland today.

Officials said that Gotti will most likely be

forced to enter in the county’s drug diversion program.

In June, John Bryant, labeled as the star of

the Murder Inc. backed film "Crime Partners," was arrested in Los

Angeles during a routine traffic stop after police found four tablets of Ecstasy

on him.

He was riding in a Cadillac Escalade registered

to Ja Rule.
